The 72

Hull City boss Grant McCann is expecting a tough test for his side away at Luton Town today.

The Tigers go into the game having not won in their past five matches.

McCann, who took over at the KCOM Stadium over the summer from Doncaster Rovers, believes his Tigers will come good once they get used his style of play.

He has spoken to Hull’s official club website ahead of their trip to Kenilworth Road this afternoon: “It’s going to be a very tough game for us on Saturday. Kenilworth Road is never an easy place to go and we had a tough game there with Doncaster last season, although we did beat them at home.”

“Yes, they have brought players in over the summer under a new manager, but I think things stay the same in terms of their approach. They’re a fluid side that likes to play through the lines with good rotation and movement in the midfield. They have forwards that like to play high and wide, so we know a lot about them and we have to make sure that our game-plan outweighs theirs.”

He added: “We’ll continue to be on the front foot, attacking and trying to be brave. If you include the Preston game over 90 minutes, we’ve drawn the last three games and we know that we’re not a million miles away from being where we want to be.”

Hull will be backed by a sold-out away allocation at Luton as they hope for their first away win of the campaign.
